So I’ve decided to jump on the live video blog bandwagon. I’ve caught a couple of the “Gossip with Getz” live shows that air on Tuesday nights, and decided, “Hey, that looks fun.” So here’s the deal: This Thursday night at 9PM EST/6 PST, I will do a live video blog right here on RealitySteve.com, and I plan on continuing to do them every Thursday night. I have no idea how long it’ll be for, no idea what’s in store for each show, but I’m sure Maddie will somehow be a part of it. Bear with me as I hope to get the kinks worked out in this Thursday’s first show, but it should be fun. I’ll answer some Dr. Reality Steve emails, answer questions you may have about the show, and you’ll even be able to sign into the live chat that’s going on while the show is airing to ask stuff. Will there be guests? Good question. For the first few episodes, I’m guessing no. But eventually, sure I’d like to get one other person on. When there’s 4 or 5 or 6 people on at once, the delay kicks in and it gets too cluttered for me. So check it out this Thursday night at 9PM EST/6PM PST. Still will have a regular “Reader Emails” and “Dr. Reality Steve” column Thursday, but just gonna add the live video blog that night. Looking forward to it.
The thing I’ve been asked about the most in the last 24 hours is the announcement that Chris Harrison made in Canada yesterday that there will be a “Bachelor: Canada” starting in the fall. And every email asked me the same thing: Will I be writing about and spoiling that show? The answer is no. Here’s why: The “Bachelor: Canada” is not being shown in the states. I’ll never see it. So there’s the biggest reason I won’t write about it. I just have no interest in talking about a show I know nothing about and can’t watch. If any spoilers come across my inbox, maybe I’ll share them, but I can’t imagine I’ll get too many. This is a show strictly for Canadians, and it’s airing at a time when there is no “Bachelor” season airing in the states – in the fall. I don’t believe Chris Harrison will be part of “Bachelor: Canada” because it’s being put on by a completely different production company, and he’s still got the “Bachelorette” and “Bachelor Pad” to shoot in basically March-June, which is when I’m guessing the “Bachelor: Canada” will be shooting. Sorry Canadians. If I can’t see it, there’s no point to write about it.
Now lets get to the goodies. So what happened in Vegas this weekend at the reunion. Any serious hookups? Any storylines set in motion for “Bachelor Pad 3?” I’ve gotten a few details, so here’s what I can share:
-Ali and Frank shared a lot of time together on camera. I GUARANTEE YOU that the producers will play this storyline up for more than it really was. Bottom line: Frank actually still lives with the girl he dumped Ali for on his season and I’m told he’s very happy with her. Nothing is going on between Frank and Ali, nothing happened in Vegas between Frank and Ali, but you can bet your ass they will make it seem like it did.
-Jenna from Ben’s season attended, as she was the only one of Ben’s girls who was there. And that pretty much guarantees she’ll be on “Bachelor Pad” since there is no other reason whatsoever to let her there and no one else unless she was under serious consideration. And considering what good meltdown TV she brought us, why wouldn’t they want her back?
-Reading some of the Twitter accounts and looking at pictures, some girls looked great, and others, not so much. However one consensus that I did get is that a lot of people were impressed with how Erica Rose looked. Good for her. And her gavel.
-Natalie the make out bandit was on the loose again. Who was her lucky catch? None other than Ben Castoriano from Ashley’s season. Hey, what happened to her crush on Ryan Park?
-Well, looks like Ryan spent some quality time with one of Ali’s good friends, Valisha Savage from Jake’s season. I think there’s a good chance that could be a power couple, or at least a non in-your-face couple, come “Bachelor Pad 3.”
-A lot of guys from Ashley’s season were there, and I expect we’ll see some of them cast for BP3.
-The producers were in rare form in trying to get the cattiness out of people asking some in their ITM’s: “So who here do you think looks the ugliest?”, “Who can you not stand to be around?”, and “How desperate is so-and-so trying to get on Bachelor Pad?” It’s unbelievable what they can get these people to say.
-As for some people who attended with girlfriends or boyfriends back home? Ummmm, lets just say that didn’t stop them for scoping out the scene, so to speak. Not all of them tried and not all of them succeeded, but some did.
I’ll report if I hear any more in the future, but that’s what I got for now. On to last night…
